Report A Crime

Welcome to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Citizens Online Police Reporting System. If this is an Emergency or a crime is in progress/just occurred, please call 911. Using this online citizen crime reporting system allows you to submit a report without leaving your home; however, not every crime can be reported. Please confirm the following to find out if online citizen crime reporting is right for you:

  • This is not an emergency?
  • This incident occurred within Loudoun County?
  • This is not a motor vehicle crash or hit and run?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, please ensure you have gathered all basic information to complete the report, such as:

  • Date and time range of incident
  • Location
  • Serial / model numbers and description of stolen items (if applicable)
  • Any possible suspect or suspect vehicle description (if applicable)
